Get Fit Your Way 

With many low impact classes to choose from, older adults can find an exercise that suits their interests and needs while still providing a fun atmosphere.

A Place to Socialize

The Y is a place that active older adults can depend on; a place where they can enrich their lives and develop new skills, new interests, and make new friends.

Chronic Disease Prevention & Management

Chronic Diseases, like heart disease, cancer, stroke, or diabetes, affect 3 out of 5 Americans. Chronic Disease Prevention Programs at the YMCA offer both physical and emotional support for those living with a chronic disease. Thanks to many donors, these programs are provided to participants for free or at a low cost.
